Abstract: The present study collected and analyzed data from 1612 handball players (779 women and 833 men) from 13-14 up to more than 18 years old. We collected data of 3 linear measurements of players’ s dominant hand, and using a new formula we obtained the "ball coverage index" which indicates the % of ball that a hand is able to cover. Finally, we propose, in a scientific way, the measure of ball that should have each age category in order to be proportional between men and women
